Minhang Museum Opens
The Minhang Museum will open in early September of 2019. This 108,000-square-foot museum is part of the Minhang District’s Qibao Culture Park Development. As the anchor to the culture park, the museum will be a forum for civic engagement. Designed as a spiral rising out of the ground, the museum’s roof is an extension of the park’s landscape.
The landscaped roof provides a public space from which to view the park. The museum experience includes a series of linked outdoor spaces - an entry plaza, a sculpture courtyard, and a rooftop garden. Three exhibition spaces, arranged around a vertical lobby, showcase Ma Qiao cultural artifacts, traditional musical instruments, and Minhang history.
